Lenovo’s high-end lineup of Legion 7 laptops is getting a refresh, announced during CES 2021. Both the standard Legion 7 and the Legion Slim 7 have some exciting new features and design changes, which should appeal to gamers.
Perhaps the best change for this new generation’s Legion 7 is a 16-inch display with boxier 16:10 aspect ratio. The chin below the display has been mostly removed, and you ultimately have more screen real estate to work with. It has a 2560×1600 (2K) resolution for crisp visuals, and the 165Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time make everything look buttery smooth. That’s not all: you’re also getting 100% sRGB color, VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, Dolby Vision, and NVIDIA G-Sync.
All this display is backed up by up to an AMD Ryzen 9 processor (the latest Mobile chips expected to be announced soon), as well as next-gen NVIDIA mobile GPUs. This laptop is stacked. Rounding out features for the Legion 7 is Killer Wi-Fi 6 wireless connectivity, Coldfront 3.0 cooling with larger vapor chamber, and webcam shutter for added privacy.
A Legion Slim 7 refresh is also in order at CES 2021, especially important for those who want the thinnest possible chassis. There are two 15.6-inch displays to choose from, each with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The high-end version comes with a 3840×2160 (4K) resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision, and 100% AdobeRGB color, while the FHD version has a 165Hz refresh rate, 100% sRGB color, and Dolby Vision.
It’s all powered by AMD’s latest Ryzen mobile processors and NVIDIA’s latest NVIDIA RTX mobile graphics, meaning you’re going to get series performance. The Slim 7 is the thinnest and lightest gaming laptop Lenovo has ever created, weighing in at about 4.2 pounds (1.9kg). It’s available with a 720p camera and privacy shutter, Wi-Fi 6, Coldfront 3.0 thermals, fingerprint reader, and optional Corsair iCUE keyboard backlight.
Both laptops feature Lenovo’s TrueStrike gaming keyboard, updated Lenovo Q-Control with new Intelligent Mode profile, Nahimic Audio speaker tuning by SteelSeries, and a new Lenovo Legion AI Engine that helps all hardware and software work together for easy overclocking and power management.
The Lenovo Legion 7 is expected to start at about $1,670 and should release June 2021. As for the Legion Slim 7, no price is so far listed. Expect it to be released May 2021.
